Guam - The first ever Civil Rights Conference for Guam and the CNMI kicked-off this morning. U.S. Attorney Alicia Limtiaco says the conference allows federal and local law enforcement, victim's service providers, the medical and faith-based community, as well as the consultant offices on Guam to discuss hate crimes and immigration related offenses.

"We should not have to violated in any way because of our race, our ethnicity, our religious affiliation or gender identify ands so we are going to be discussing with our civil rights trainer what the laws speaks to and how we go about approaching these types of case," she explained.

Today's conference began with a special 9/11 ceremony for the families of the fallen servicemembers in our region. It continues tomorrow at the Sheraton.
